I went to Mordecai's the first time in 2013 and always wanted to go back. I gave it a positive review on Tripadvisor & recommended it to several people. Well, that has changed! Today, a friend & I drove over an hour just to have the buffet. When we arrived at 4 pm we walked around the buffet and noticed... More

Mordecai's is a rare jewel in this beautiful small town. The food is excellent, service is great and the people are so friendly. I love bringing people here for lunch or dinner! Never disappoints!

I visited with my family to meet more family for a get-together. The buffet featured lots of varieties such as roast beef - good, fried catfish, shrimp - not good, vegetables, salads, soups, great desserts. Big area for groups plus a sports bar.

We took a friend over to Mordecai's for lunch last week. We've been wanting to eat there for years, but we finally got around to it. Sad that we waited so long, and missed an opportunity for good food and good service. We all ordered the lunch buffet, and were extremely pleased all around. Our server was pleasant and competent,...

We were staying near by in perryville and we were looking for a place to eat and we found an awesome place here!! They had the seafood buffet on the night we were there and it all looked so good but we had eaten a large lunch so didn't think we had the room. But now I wish I had.... More

I gave up on this place a while back, but sometimes work insists on having meetings here. Basically because it's the only place in town. Seating takes forever and the buffet is over priced. Unless you like mediocre service and overpaying, there are certainly other options in town.

We travel quite a bit, and eat at a few good restaurants, but this is not one of them. Kind of average, not very appealing menu or presentation. The "buffet" is about what you would expect. Overcooked junk , and not too inexpensive. If you are hungry and in Springfield, this is about as good as it gets. Sorry.

We were here because so many of our friends brag about how good it is. Our waitress was friendly but not good. She sat in the back fanning herself with a menu. The seafood buffet was $28 and swarming with flies! The entire place was full of flies. You couldn't eat for shooing the flies away from your plate. My... More

In the past the buffet was very good especially the Friday evening seafood buffet. However, the lunch buffet was unimaginative and lacked a variety of good veggie choices. They ran out of catfish during my visit but replenished it several minutes later. The meatloaf was very dry and the fried chicken did not appeal to me. Let me say that... More

I usually end up here after a visit to Perryville Historic Battlefield Park. It's a short drive from Perryville and they offer a decent buffet lunch for a more than reasonable price. The food is filling if not spectacular. Don't get me wrong it's good country cooking with great service. This is where the locals told me to go years... More
